Parents & Carers – Check out this recent SchoolTV topic – UNDERSTANDING ADOLESCENCE

Adolescence is defined as affecting young people aged between 10-24 years. During this time, they experience rapid physical, cognitive and psychosocial growth which affects how they feel, think, make decisions and interact with the world around them.

During adolescence, a young person’s brain can be considered as being “under-construction”. The rate at which this progresses will vary depending on the individual and also their gender. As a result, some parents may view adolescence as stressful or difficult. However, it does not need to be. Setting boundaries, implementing consistent monitoring and maintaining a strong and loving connection will help families adjust during this time.

In this edition of SchoolTV, learn how to guide and best support a young person as they transition through adolescence.

If you have any concerns about your child, please contact the school counsellor by email at counselling@redlands.qld.edu.au for further information or seek medical or professional help.
